<p>A vertex colouring of a graph $G=(V, E)$ with $k$ coulours is a mapping $c: V \rightarrow \{1, \dots , k\}$ such that $c(u) \neq c(v)$ for every $(u, v) \in E$. Consider the following statements:</p>
<ol style="list-style-type:lower-roman">
<li>If every vertex in $G$ has degree at most $d$ then $G$ admits a vertex coulouring using $d+1$ colours.</li>
<li>Every cycle admits a vertex colouring using 2 colours</li>
<li>Every tree admits a vertex colouring using 2 colours</li>
</ol>
<p>Which of the above statements is/are TRUE? Choose from the following options:</p>

A proper vertex colouring of a graph $G$ is a colouring of the vertices in $G$ in such a way that two vertices get different colours if they are adjacent. The minimum number of colours required for proper vertex colouring of $G$ is called the chromatic number of $G$. Then what is the chromatic number of the cycle graph on 149 vertices?Graph Theoryhttp://gateoverflow.in/49072/iisc-csa-research-test-10Wed, 08 Jun 2016 05:54:36 +0000CMI2015-A-04b

<p style="line-height: 20.8px;">A college prepares its timetable by grouping courses in slots A, B, C, . . . All courses in a slot meet at the same time, and courses in different slots have disjoint timings. Course registration has been completed and the administration now knows which students are registered for each course. If the same student is registered for two courses, the courses must be assigned different slots. The administration is trying to compute the minimum number of slots required to prepare the timetable.
<br>
The administration decides to model this as a graph where the nodes are the courses and edges represent pairs of courses with an overlapping audience. In this setting, the graph theoretic question to be answered is:</p>
<p>Find a minimal colouring.</p>

Suppose each edge of an undirected graph is coloured using one of three colours &mdash; red, blue or green. Consider the following property of such graphs: if any vertex is the endpoint of a red coloured edge, then it is either an endpoint of a blue coloured edge or not an endpoint of any green coloured edge. If a graph $G$ does not satisfy this property, which of the following statements about $G$ are valid?<br />
<br />
There is a red coloured edge.<br />
<br />
Any vertex that is the endpoint of a red coloured edge is also the endpoint of a green coloured edge.<br />
<br />
There is a vertex that is not an endpoint of any blue coloured edge but is an endpoint of a green coloured edge and a red coloured edge.<br />

<p>A multinational company is developing an industrial area with many buildings. They want to connect the buildings with a set of roads so that:</p>
<ul>
<li>Each road connects exactly two buildings.</li>
<li>Any two buildings are connected via a sequence of roads.</li>
<li>Omitting any road leads to at least two buildings not being connected by any sequence of roads.</li>
</ul>
<p>Is it always possible to colour each building with either red or blue so that every road connects a red and blue building?</p>

<p>Let $G= (V, E)$ be a simple undirected graph on $n$ vertices. A colouring of $G$ is an assignment of colours to each vertex such that endpoints of every edge are given different colours. Let $\chi (G)$ denote the chromatic number of $G$, i.e. the minimum numbers of colours needed for a valid colouring of $G$. A set $B\subseteq V$ is an independent set if no pair of vertices in $B$ is connected by an edge. Let $a(G)$ be the number of vertices in a largest possible independent set in $G$. In the absence of any further information about $G$ we can conclude.</p>
<ol style="list-style-type: upper-alpha;">
<li>$\chi (G)\geq a(G)$</li>
<li>$\chi (G)\leq a(G)$</li>
<li>$a(G)\geq n/\chi (G)$</li>
<li>$a(G)\leq n/\chi (G)$</li>
<li>None of the above.</li>

<p>Consider the undirected graph $G$ defined as follows. The vertices of $G$ are bit strings of length $n$. We have an edge between vertex $u$ and vertex $v$ if and only if $u$ and $v$ differ in exactly one bit position (in other words, $v$ can be obtained from $u$ by flipping a single bit). The ratio of the chromatic number of $G$ to the diameter of $G$ is</p>
